Security News in Scotland
Millions of pounds are set to be spent on upgrading CCTV systems throughout Scotland in a move that will standardise cameras across the country. There are critics, however, such as Professor William Webster of Stirling University, who believes that CCTV alone cannot solve safety issues. He suggests that CCTV needs to be used in conjunction with improved lighting and more police patrols in order to reduce crime on the streets. He also believes that more public education is needed so that people understand how CCTV can be used by police, and what to do if there is an incident. He agrees, however, that CCTV can be an invaluable tool for detecting crimes and providing evidence.
The Scottish Government now wishes to standardise the CCTV network across the country by upgrading older analogue cameras to new digital ones, thus improving the quality of footage and the likelihood of crimes being detected and criminals prosecuted.
Elsewhere in Scotland, thousands of elderly residents in Glasgow may be forced to give up security alarms after the council introduced charges. Glasgow City Council has introduced the £3 a week charge from December 2012 to pay for the community alarm telecare service. Currently, around seven per cent of council residents have said that they cannot afford to pay the cost, but this could potentially rise to around twenty-two per cent, or 3000 residents.
